Space for toilet and Ikea Closet

New Tub & Surround

Vanity Location

First Coat of Wall Color similar to a light beach glass

Sarah’s Bathroom is well underway! They started last week. Demolition is now complete (and there was some interesting lincrusta underneath the old tile and closet), the new drywall is all in, and a new closet is partially installed. The tile guy is due tomorrow and next week they will install all of the fixtures! If all goes well the whole thing will have taken 2 1/2 weeks.

For the new closet, we went with the PAX closet system from Ikea. We were concerned about the bottom being adjacent to the tile floor and toilet so I had them raise it up on studs so that the tile base would be continuous underneath. At the top they will install crown molding to cap it off. It will then get doors installed on the front. This should really add to the storage capacity for Sarah’s family.

I  also like the wall color (I need to go double check the color). We went with a fairly light color that resembled a light beach glass. The second coat should go on today. Once the white wall tile goes up, it should be different enough to be noticeable.

For reference here is the mood board for the room:
